Advisory Council—The West Virginia Advisory Council for the Education of Exceptional Children (WVACEEC) is mandated by state Code $18-20-6 and charged in part with advising decision makers regarding the unmet needs of exceptional children which includes students with disabilities and students identified as gifted.  The mission adopted by the Council is to influence the State Board of Education, public policy makers, and West Virginia’s citizens in ways that continuously improve educational outcomes for children with exceptionalities.

The Council meets monthly in various locations across the state to seek input and gain information about programs and services for exceptional students.  Local media, local and regional special education administrators, Parent Educator Resource Centers, principals, superintendents, school board members, school improvement councils, faculty senates and community members are informed about scheduled meetings.  The Council produces an annual report to the WV Board of Education with recommendations.
